An update to my #MSWL:

I'm looking for more MG & YA thrillers/mysteries in my inbox. Whether you have an unreliable narrator, a group of friends trying to solve/find something, or some weird magic going on, I'd love to see it!

Soooo I'm just going to pop in to say that a Sisterhood of Traveling Pants like friendship story with an all queer and/or POC cast of character has been on my #mswl for aaaawhile.

The 2014 Ninja Turtles movie might be a bit of a mixed bag, but I’ve always loved the scene where they all start beatboxing in the elevator, on the way to their battle with Shredder

It perfectly captures the fact that they’re goofy teenage brothers

I think abt TMNT a lot, lol.

I want a YA ft. a friendship dynamic (esp. w/ a group of boys!) that reflects this sibling dynamic, & directly opposes—

The societal idea that boys aren't allowed to show they love each other the way these idiots did!

Currently listening to Binge Mode Harry Potter, rewatching ATLA, next rewatch Dawson’s Creek. Next read? Hopefully some YA or MG featuring a ride or die group of friends. A story where friendship and love is central to the protag’s success. #MSWL

Hey authors! I’ve updated my #MSWL on my website, so check it out for more specifics on what I’d love to see in my inbox right now.📚

I’ve been in such a Mood for two very different kinds of books:

(1) Southern fiction a la Kristy Woodson Harvey, with warmth, setting as character, female friendships and/or multigenerational families, and secrets/hardships that come to light. Can be A or YA!

Nicole Fiorica @NicoleFios · Feb 20

I weep over female friendship in YA. WEEP. There can never be too much of this. #mswl

Brit Brooks-Perilli @Britny_Perilli · Feb 16

Always always on the hunt for diverse, creative contemporary YA that can capture the humor, heart, and playfulness of anime. 💖

Bonus if the story involves friends sharing their passions (geeky or not) or has some delicious food. #mswl

#MSWL I am working through queries received January 20th. I would love to see more of a few things in my inbox!
• YA contemporary. Bring me an up-to-date Girl: Interrupted! Combustible, all-consuming friendships, high stakes situations, departure-from-everyday-life stories.

Ali Herring @HerringAli · Feb 2

I would REALLY REALLY like a “Dumplin” for the middle grade audience. In these formative years, there needs to be a book about accepting/loving yourself, how to handle bullies, positive coping mechs, finding true friends, and just general body positivity. #MSWL

I have been a Love Island UK evangelist for several years. Winter season is no less, BUT if you’re writing a book about reality tv, set on a reality show, or girl friendships of the toxic or not variety (YA, Adult) I want to read it!
